In the latest blow to TMC, TMC MLA Shilabhadra Dutta quits the party and the post. He is expected to join BJP in presence of Amit Shah.

 Kolkata: BJP has been aggressively campaigning in Bengal to break the Mamata Banerjee’s government.

Mamtha Banerjee and her TMC Govt in the state is already furious with the Centre over the transfers of IPS officers. BJP has been pressurizing the TMC government and trying ways and means to deface Mamatha’s government.

Apart from the pressure from the BJP, the Party is also dealing with the internal rebellion.

In the latest blow to Mamata Banerjee, TMC MLA Shilabhadra Dutta quit the party and the post. He is the third member to resign as the rebellion comes on the heels of two TMC leaders- Suvendu Adhikari and Jitendra Tiwari already resigning from the party.

These three exits in just last two days have become significant as Home Minister Amit Shah will be visiting Bengal this week. It is speculated that these leaders will join the saffron party in presence of Shah.

Talks with Shilbhadra Dutta Failed

Reports say that Shilbhadra Dutta, the third member to exit, had earlier said that he will not contest elections this time.

Soon officials from different parties approached him but the talks failed. Attempt was made by the TMC to resolve the issues, but he was not present at that moment.

Suvendu Adhikari Resigns

Suvendu Adhikari, a senior leader from Nandigram played a key role in getting Banerjee re-elected for the second term in 2016. He was the key force behind the Movement that propelled West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee to power in 2011.

It is said that Adhikari has control over local leaders in more than 50 seats in the western part of the state. Adhikari was reportedly unhappy over the rise of Banerjee’s Nephew Abhishek in the party.
